Deb, over at Insomnomaniac, seems to have tapped into the feel of the country rather well, here. This passage is yet another reason to keep that Blog permlinked to my own. ….the Democratic party doesn’t want me as its constituent. The Democratic party doesn’t care about the things I care about, and doesn’t want me […]

George Plimpton, Robert Palmer, and now the third…. who, as it turns out, is Donald O’Connor. I used to work at a Music Of Your Life station some years ago, and therein got an education on just what this talented man was capable of.

Based on the current polling data, Grey-Out Davis will not be Gov of California soon. I can’t say I’m displeased by this point.  Anyone will be better than Davis. However, I still wish McClintock stood a chance, here. It’d be great if we could have a real conservative out there. Still, it’s a start. What […]

Word on the wire just now that Robert Palmer is dead in Paris from a heart attack at age 54. Amazing, given that he did not, as far as I know engage in the excesses of Rock Stardom. Palmer dies at 54, and Keith Richards….. well….. Makes no sense. These things always come in threes… […]

The so-called “Debate” out in California, last night, I mean. But hey, what the hell, this is California we’re talking about. Arnold proved he could give and take that garbage with the rest, and came off looking at least an equal to the rest in the smarts department. The one who impressed me as having […]

A story running in the NYTimes this morning, suggests that a recent Gallup poll has two thirds of Iraqis polled, like the idea that saddam is gone from power, and think it was all worth the trouble. Interestingly enough, the page that the story is on, refuses to resolve. Couldn’t be the Times, now could […]

Oh, now, THIS is cute. Cruz Bustamante has been ordered to return around $4million dollars in illegal donations. Thing is, it’s all been spent. Explain to me why he’s still in office. Explain to me why he’s not in jail. Explain to me why the press isn’t all Cruz Bustamante scandal all the time. We […]

I’ve about had it with the “Bush Lied” business. Let’s call this what it is; THe Demorats are trying to sell us a bill of goods. They know it. Check their own words. “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles […]

According to an article published today in Annanova, Violinist Martie Maguire told Spiegel magazine: “We don’t feel part of the country scene any longer, it can’t be our home any more.” She said she was disappointed other country singers didn’t back up the Dixie Chicks in their criticism of George W Bush’s politics on Iraq.

The New York Times, in a story about the California Recall, complained about the “mass disenfranchisement” that the story claimed happens when voters “in the counties stuck with punch cards are far more likely than other Californians to have their ballots thrown out.” Apparently, the NYT doesn’t read itself, or figures it’s readers don’t. Oh, […]
